My friend Misty posted on Facebook that she created a card from her family’s Elf on the Shelf to say good bye on Christmas Eve.
I loved the idea so much I went to Pinterest to see if if I could find a fun template or wording that I could use to make one of our own.
I then downloaded a card template from Becky Higgins, added the text to a 4×6 card + a photo of our Elf from earlier in the month and had it printed at Walgreens. I’m so excited to have our Elf holding it on Christmas Eve. After that it will promptly go in my Project Life album. 🙂
Below is the message in case you want to copy it and use it for your Elf.
Dear Elias and Adeline,
Today’s my last day, I must say good-bye.
Tonight I must go, to the North Pole I’ll fly.
But Santa will be here with gifts and good cheer, and I will be back the same time next year.
So be a good boy and girl, and take care of yourself –
remember the fun times you had with Sam the Elf.
But above all else, remember what’s true
That God sent us Jesus, a gift that never leaves you!
